AS 9100 AS 9100


Members of the aerospace industry collaborated to establish a single common Quality Management System, resulting in AS9100, 9110, 9120.   This series of standards covers the complete spectrum of organizations working within the aerospace sector –  from design and manufacture to maintenance organizations and distributors.

  • AS9100 – Quality Management System Requirements for Design and/or Manufacture of Aerospace Products
  • AS9110 – Quality Management System Requirements for Maintenance Organizations
  • AS9120 – Quality Management System Requirements for Stockist Distributors

The Aerospace Standards (AS) are based upon ISO 9001 and developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) to provide international consistency and address the specific regulatory, safety and reliability requirements demanded by the aerospace sector. 

These standards are implemented and supported by the world’s leading aerospace companies as well as throughout their supply chain partnerships.
